Not only Dhaka Credit, also you are promoting Bangladesh: State Minister Chumki

Bangladesh’s State Minister for Women and Children Affairs Meher Afroz Chumki commended the innovative projects launched by Dhaka Credit. “You are not only promoting financial activities of Dhaka Credit, but also enriching Bangladesh through various projects for developing common people in the country,” she, as chief guest, said in her inaugural speech of a project launched by Dhaka Credit in the heart of Dhaka city.

She was speaking so while inaugurating an international standard DC Child Care and Education Center at Monipuripara in Dhaka on February 8, 2017. She also said, “The government has thought about such Child Care Center; but you have already started it. You have become pioneer. Christian community has set a unique example in serving people in Bangladesh. If needed, the government will take advice from Dhaka Credit to take care of the children.”

Further she mentioned that mothers are always worried about their kids as both the parents go for work.  At workplace, they are in true trouble allowing housemaids to take care of their kids. Through this center, they will get chance to pay full attention to work. The initiative taken by Dhaka Credit will help develop children as good citizens. The Minister assured Dhaka Credit all support and cooperation from side of the government to materialize its initiatives.

The inaugural session was presided over by Dhaka Credit’s president Babu Markus Gomes while secretary Pankaj Gilbert Costa facilitated the program. Special guests were Bangladesh Christian Association’s president Nirmal Rozario, secretary general Hemanto I Corraya, Dhaka Metropolitan Christian Cooperative Housing Society’s chairman Augustine Purification, Dhaka Credit’s former president Hubert Gomes, advisor Simon Gomes, Helen Rozario, Father Ripon D 'Rozario and some others.  

Dhaka Credit’s president Babu Markus Gomes first dreamed of founding this center. In his speech, said, “I dreamed and planned to establish this Child Care and Education Center two years ago. Today it is a reality. There are many challenges encountered by the new couple regarding taking care of their children.” 

Regarding background of the center, he explained that two years ago, on the way to official trip to Peru, there was an opportunity to visit seven Child Care and Education Centers in Singapore. After visiting those he felt an urge to initiate this center in Dhaka for the children. Here the children can have family environment to grow and get quality daycare facilities including education to become ideal citizens.

Due to this center, Babu Markus said, couples will be able to work hassle-free at their workplaces. “Through Dhaka Credit, we want to bring about positive change in the area of socio-economic development. This DC Child Care is a manifestation of such plan.

This is the first time Bangladesh finds such Child Care and Education Center. The centre located at 88/5 Monipuripara, just east side of the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban.

David Wang Wei Lee, who runs all the seven international standard centers in Singapore is the consultant of this DC Child Care and Education Center has considered all facilities child friendly. All the play-things, educational supplies,  furniture, total infrastructure are educative as well.

Bangla is also in their curriculums along with the Cambridge curriculums. Children from all religious background, 18 months to six years old can stay here from 7am to 7pm having received all facilities including breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks, nap after lunch, game and what not.
